Firm recognised for continued dedication to supporting local community initiatives at the Derbyshire Times Business Awards
Last night saw Spencers Solicitors celebrating at the annual Derbyshire Times Business Awards, as they were awarded the win in Community Contribution of the Year. The awards recognise and celebrate the very best in local business and commerce, and Spencers were distinguished for their long-term support of a number of community programmes and charitable initiatives.
The evening's celebrations took place at Chesterfield Football Club, where nominees were treated to a drinks reception and three-course dinner followed by the awards announcements and entertainment. Jessica Eyre and Lisa Morris attended from Spencers and were invited on stage to pick up the award, which saw them triumph over some very worthy competition.
Their victory comes in recognition of the firms dedicated support to a great many community initiatives, pledging time and resources to support local schools, charities and community groups.
Examples of their community work include the firm's long-standing backing of Ashgate Hospice through various fund-raising events and activities to support staff and patients, their partnership with the Chesterfield FC Community Trust to promote sports participation and social inclusion within the local area, and their multiple educational initiatives which aim to improve the future career prospects of Chesterfield's young people.
Commenting on their win, Spencers CEO Rob Landman said:
"Winning this award is a fantastic acknowledgement of the dedication and generosity exhibited by our team here at Spencers. Everyone has worked hard to make each of our charitable and community endeavours as successful as possible, and so this recognition is one shared by the entire firm. We will continue to support our local community in any way we can, and hope others are encouraged to see that local businesses really can make a change to the community around them."
